constitution to guarantee the free and safe use of the russian language also the de centralization of power to the eastern regions also mentioned early local and parliamentary elections but one of the plans top point is to guarantee safety for all negotiating parties and that is although for a single himself is refusing to hold talks with leaders of the self-proclaimed republics. now before the ceasefire was actually implemented the army had been targeting cities across the east and often with fatal results. but. do we. have. all this particular family was left devastated when a mortar shell hit their backyard a young mother was killed on the spot five year old son was taken to hospital with

multiple head wounds and their doctors for five hours to try and save his life but he died obviously injuries on the operating table mark sloboda a senior lecturer in international relations and security studies at moscow state university believes that present peace plan is actually an ultimatum. peace by definition is negotiated and poor shango has already declared that there will be no negotiation with the political and militant leaders on the ground in the eastern ukraine so this is not a peace plan this is an ultimatum a demand for the unconditional surrender under promise of extermination as well this decentralization is not clearly defined but what we have seen so far is that only includes local executive committees governors would still have the right to be overruled and appointed by kiev this declaration of a cease fire is merely a p.r.
5:06 am
move by the poor janko regime in the run up it's not a surprise that the declared ceasefire ends on the very day that poroshenko was supposed to sign the e.u. association agreement. well moscow has warned that some points in pershing because plan could actually lead to greater bloodshed rather than actually solving the crisis and we reported more on that online. this is the f. thirty five stealth fighter jet it's america's most advanced and most expensive war play and it's just been given yet another boost in a new defense spending bill bust despite the pentagon having already shelled out nearly four hundred billion dollars on its development and to cover the costs the plane is now being touted to foreign buyers saudis reimport no explains. the f. thirty five stealth fighter jet is the crandell a crime of military planes. and the pentagon's most expensive
5:07 am
conventional weapons program it's a game changer the world's only fifth generation fighter jet is manufactured by lockheed martin combining state of the art technology with highly advanced avionics and maneuverability the pentagon plans to buy nearly twenty five hundred f. thirty five but delays and cost increases have left u.s. lawmakers frustrated over the three hundred eighty five billion dollar price tag and that's where america's allies come in. lockheed martin has turned to international partners including britain australia and canada collectively the countries have invested more than twenty billion dollars buying up the war craft a weapon that many experts view as a global gamble there's never been anything anywhere near as expensive and the entire process is one in which the costs can only go up. the other problem is that the more they spend in the more the united states and the
5:08 am
manufacturer and now a whole bunch of other countries become invested in it the more they have to go ahead any of these countries that want to be cutting edge feel that they have no choice boosting demand from foreign investors is believed to be essential for the pentagon and lockheed martin why because the more f. thirty five are produced the cheaper each jet is to build and maintain her in a port naya r.t. . the f. thirty five has been suffering one setback after another in the most recent case the entire fleet was grounded and testing was suspended after one of the planes suffered an oil leak but the engines are not the only part where this aircraft is experiencing some problems as we can take a look now you can see that the plane is actually been suffering well documented hotspots and cracks head to tail the pentagon even prohibited it from flying within forty kilometers of a thunderstorm and that was born out of fears that its fuel tank could actually

explode if struck by lightning we spoke to an aircraft designer who says on top of the technical glitches the f. thirty five program is also plagued by bureaucracy. it's one of the worst airplanes we've ever designed. for a lot of reasons but the most important reason is that it was compromised by having to do three different jobs you can never make a good airplane if you don't focus on a single drop single mission and then they made it even worse price saying that we'd save money by giving it up among three services so now you have three missions pulling the airplane in different directions now you have three services three bureaucracies adding their parochial points of view the airplane is a complete mess and mind you this is the most expensive single project that the that the defense department has ever undertaken. so the come for you this hour solving the ugly side of the beautiful game russia is facing

a tough times to contain football hooliganism as it passed to take over from brazil but some think the issue has been blown. and also on the way find out how an online technology used as evidence of criminality against one u.s. hacker is now being permitted rejoined call right. first though an online push by the u.s. to promote a transatlantic partnership deal with europe has been met with criticism on both sides of the ocean twenty thousand dollars is being offered to anybody who comes up with lucrative trade ideas but opponents say that that think is tiny compared to the potential damage that massive cooperation agreement could speed to all of the details. the united states has been accused of a cynical propaganda campaign after a tweet originated from its embassy just behind me here. this tweet was with regard to the transatlantic trade and investment partnership between europe and the united
5:11 am
states now the tweet was offering up to twenty thousand u.s. dollars for any projects people could come up that would protect the treat deal in a good light snow it has come in for some scathing criticism from people here in europe mostly because of worries over a decrease in standards the standards for products in europe are far higher than they are in the united states also on workers' rights as well though this is seen environmentalist environmentalists trade unions and health campaign is all railing against this trade deal to put that into perspective of the public opinion here in europe when it comes to the environment ninety six percent of germans say they have faith in european environmental regulation well only two percent believe in regulations inforced in the united states has also been controversy surrounding
5:12 am
genetically modified foods not liked here in europe people have demonstrated against them however there is concern that because of u.s. labeling laws they could inadvertently become into the european markets so all of these things the same criticism of this tweet well it's kind of they have come in for far more criticism online because of this. well the transatlantic trade deal does look pretty good on paper the partnership would allow the removal of trade barriers and the regulator the difference is hindering growth of the u.s. or e.u. economies would be washed away plus america and europe's collective g.d.p. would be boosted essentially by around two hundred fifty billion dollars but critics believe that some pieces of the puzzle just don't fit the corporations would end up ruling governments and taxpayers therefore would end up footing the bill for anything that goes wrong and it would be almost impossible to hold any corporation to account because of the sheer size of the structure and the lack of
5:13 am
transparency a very good model shank of the friends committee on national legislation believes that all that is an opportunity for the u.s. and the e.u. to flex their muscles while it's good for investors it's bad for health it's bad for the environment it's bad for labor and it's bad for regulations that countries and states have worked for decades to institute so those are some of the biggest concerns and what it says to russia or what it says to china with the t p p is that we don't want you a part of this conversation and in this very globalized interconnected world particular in trade because we don't have many barriers between us and e.u. already so when we're doing t.j. it's not really about removing trade barriers because the tariffs are quite low it's about saying to the rest of the world we have this partnership it's exclusive and you're not going to be a part of it ok don't go too far because of the back with more international news after this very short break. it's.

5:17 am
a coincidence but along with these problems came whole organism. it's still unclear what caused this surge in violence but in recent years russian hooligans have remained visible from violent pitch invasions to mass street rallies and racist incidents involving swastikas in the stands near nazi views and phobia are among the most debate that issues back in twenty to one a fan was killed during fighting in moscow that escalated into ethnic violence thousands of ultras made themselves heard right outside the walls of the kremlin. politically motivated people have always been close to find groups not only have a propaganda is the cult of violence but they explained why this violence was needed that's why i know c.v.s. are popular there because force and violence are the basis of naziism and fascism but for more and found over russia's largest fan movement to market than i have believes the issue is often blown up in the press and problems are usually solved even before they appear. who spearheaded events at the my down in ukraine some

dot com for you a hair raising video captured by a security camera in the u.s. this is lucky biker was left in a spin after somersaulting in the air and even landing on his feet following a collision with the car we've got this and other amazing videos for you on our you tube channel. plus the mass panic caused by a visitor in the skies had online google balloon send shivers down the spines of locals and emergency services in new zealand. thirty five years in prison the confiscation of assets and a million dollar fine that was the punishment of a young u.s. program that was facing before he committed suicide he'd been accused of using anti tracking technology online but what wasn't allowed for one individual was given the green light for computer giant our pool which is now installing the very same system into its products auntie's gun each account has more. apple is taking
5:20 am
a step toward preventing mobile devices from broadcasting information about their users whereabouts the company announced that he will spoof the mac addresses emitted by its wireless devices as an anti tracking measure the meca dress is of course the unique number that identifies you on a network tech experts also point out the said i would be when an individual namely internet pioneer late aaron swartz spoofed his mac address the government held it out as evidence of criminality in his indictment aaron swartz was arrested in two thousand and eleven for downloading academic articles from a subscription based research website it is universally with the intention to make them available to the public although none of what he has downloaded was classified prosecutors wanted to put him in jail for thirty five years aaron swartz has had earlier drawn the f.b.i. as attention in two thousand and eight twenty downloaded and released about three million federal court documents from a restricted service the government did not press charges then because the
5:21 am
documents were in fact public interest warrants became an internet freedom activist calling for others to join we interviewed him a number of times here in our team. and it's the foundation of our constitution the government is constrained by having someone else check off to make sure they're not abusing their power aaron swartz committed suicide at the age of twenty six his family and friends believe the government's relentless persecution was a major factor it's interesting how tech giant apple is now developing its privacy protecting measure when aaron swartz did it the government thought it was a crime anyway tech experts say there are still other ways to track you down or your smartphone and spoofing your mac address alone will not make you untraceable the electronic frontier foundation described apple's initiative as opening an umbrella in the middle of a hurricane but privacy advocates welcomed the step they hope more companies will rise to the challenge of protecting their users. and staying with that story
5:22 am
journalist and civil rights activist david seaman told me that technology will not protect users from being spied on or number of other hardware identifiers aside from the mac address that your cell phone is still emitting so this definitely doesn't restore total privacy to the user but there's also a larger theme here which is that governments are spying on us and these cell phones are not designed to be all that secure from day one clearly there is a double standard out there if you're a large tech company the government will turn the other way but aaron schwartz this is one of the things they used against him was that he spoofed mac addresses apparently and it just goes to show you that there are people within this government who use some of these outdated laws and use an incomplete understanding of internet technology to pretty much go after whoever they don't like and to make that person's life a lot more difficult with hard to fight charges the u.n. report says that more than

so are we going back to iraq recently violence has flared up as insurgents are taking cities from the current iraqi government and response to this chaos obama declared that his administration is prepared to take military action whenever our national security is threatened oh well since the weapons of mass destruction were never found in iraq and the current militants can't shoot a key forty seven over the ocean i don't see how us national security is at risk now or before the iraq war even started but on the other hand the flow of oil from us but tamia well that might be at risk but sometimes i forget that obama is a politician and just a day later he was quoted as saying quite the opposite about the same situation declaring that we will not be sending u.s. troops back into combat in iraq which sounds great to my ears and do you wait yet another few days and now he is saying that they want to send at least two hundred seventy five troops to provide support and security for u.s. personnel and the us embassy in baghdad i think this orwellian attitude towards the truth comes from two factors one lying works and obama gets away with it and to the

fear of looking weak presidents have to act confident like they were total control with an awesome plan even when they have no idea what they're going to do i think this is the case with this iraq issue but that's just my opinion. what about washington getting tougher on its allies like saudi arabia because it's nothing. that saudi money was a crucial factor in the rise of the extremist can a bomb or to take it out on the united states dragged their feet they did declare early on in the uprising that it was a terrorist organization and about the mossad and others were terrorist organizations and proscribed them but it did very little to carry through with that and to force its allies to equally prescribe those groups.
